Senichi Hoshino told reporters yesterday that he spoke to Masataka Nashida about having Masahiro Tanaka and Yuki Saito face each other at least twice a year during their reigns as manager.

Said Hoshino, "I told Nashida we should make it our campaign promise to have these two face each other at least twice a year.  But then he said, 'You can't really trust campaign promises.'  In any case, we need to try and get this done so that we can make the fans happy."

But in the end, Nashida also agreed to try and set things so that the two would face each other.
